Even and Odd Frankenstein

This week we are studying even and odd and the kids are loving it.
It is a fun standard to learn and not too challenging.

We broke into groups for practice using Tri-Bits and 
the game boards from the Math Helps Even and Odd.

They got a kick out of figuring out 6 and 7 digit numbers so their assignment today is a bit of fun and Frankenstein ;) Click on the image to download a copy!!

October Math Stations... and... Pumpkin Math

October already!!!
I love this time of year!
I apologize for this getting posted ON October 1st.
Lance and I ran away last week for a bit of R&R... we didn't get much rest, however, we had a lot of fun.
We're back to the grind and ready to get back to work!1
Happy Fall Friends!!

One of my favorite activities is when my kiddos bring in a pumpkin and we do a day full of math with it.  Educlips had a darling new set of clipart... so I updated an oldie but goodie to even better.  You can check it out here.

Back to School 2016

Another exciting year has begun for our second grade team!

My classroom theme this year is Monsters...
the kids love it ;)

We started our math with skip counting.
  I have a few FREE gameboards that you can download here
 if you plan on teaching it anytime soon ;)

This is our second year using WONDERS so it is quite a bit easier.
We started Fast and Fluent the 2nd week of school and the kids did great!
I'm excited to have this in our small group rotations.
(1st grade is now available and 3rd will be by Tuesday ;)

The family is going to enjoy a little R&R during Labor Day weekend.
I hope you enjoy your day off too ;)

So here is a scanned version.
If it can help anyone... click the first photo and it will take you to GoogleDocs.

Best Year Ever Sale

Did you hear the news?
I'm not sure whether to be excited or not.
My cart is filling up, however, I'm mentally not quite ready to start school again.
The Evans' household has enjoyed the 'lack of routine'... 
pjs until noon... late night fun etc.
That will quickly come to a fast halt.

I do know that as soon as I open my classroom
 to begin to prepare for the new year... 
see my fabulous co-workers...
start planning for my new little ones...
the positive vibes will return!!

My daughter asked... if the school would ever consider 
pjs appropriate for the dress code ;)
hmmmm.... maybe we do need to step it up around here ;)

Enjoy the sale and don't forget the code
BESTYEAR... because it will be for all of us!!
